Situated in Kingsthorpe, Boughton Lodge Care Home is less than two miles from Northampton City Centre with great transport links.

Boughton Lodge is a domestic house that has been converted to provide a residential care home for people requiring a home due to difficulties and infirmities, including a form of dementia.

Their aim is to provide those residents with a ‘home from home’ in a secure, relaxed and comfortable environment.

The home has 17 bedrooms set across two floors with a stair chair lift for ease of access to the first floor. The majority of rooms have en-suite toilet and wash basins and some are fitted with walk- in showers. The bedrooms are the resident's private space and are encouraged to personalise their rooms. The home provides all the furniture they should require but if residents prefer to bring their own they may do so.

Residents have a choice of two lounges to relax and socialise in, as well as secure patio areas to overlook the gardens of the home.

Landscaped gardens wrap around the home, providing areas for relaxing and socialising outdoors, with certain areas being secure for those with dementia.

Nutritious food plays a big role in keeping older, vulnerable people in good health. The home provides high-quality food which is prepared on-site with choices available for residents to choose from. Special dietary requirements are catered for including gluten free diets and diabetics.

At Boughton Lodge, staff are trained to provide residents with care and support using a person-centred approach. They aim to provide activities that residents will enjoy by consulting with residents and families. Activities may consist of a number of in-home activities as well as regular external excursions.

Boughton Lodge has a purpose-built hairdressing salon where the hairdresser visits twice a week. There are regular visits from chiropodists and opticians.

8.2 Boughton Lodge has a Review Score of 8.2 (8.193)

The Review Score of 8.2 (maximum of 10) for Boughton Lodge is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.4 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Boughton Lodge in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.8 out of 5 from 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Care Home / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Care Home receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.417 for Boughton Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (11 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.417

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Care Home to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 3.776 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Boughton Lodge is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 3.8 positive Reviews (19 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 3.8 Target = 0.526

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Reviewer Connection to Boughton Lodge

  • Niece of Resident/Service User

The minute I walked into this home in February 2016, it felt homely and inviting. It does not have too many residents which I think is why it is right for my Aunt. The staff are helpful and friendly. The family know that she is being well looked after.

Sarah Holland, Registered Manager at Boughton Lodge responded to this review on 02 May 2017:

Thank you for your kind words.

A lovely homely feel. The rooms are cleaned daily and personal belongings such as photographs are respected. Food wise, residents are offered a varied menu. Residents can request snacks and they are offered snacks with their hot drinks. Staff make time to answer any queries. Good atmosphere.
